Solid-state nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) has emerged as one of the premier methods for polymer characterization in the solid-state. High-resolution spectra can be obtained with cross-polarization and magic-angle sample spinning using equipment that is commonly available on modern NMR spectrometers. Information about the chain structure, conformation, dynamics, intermolecular interactions and the morphology can be obtained by measuring the chemical shifts, line shapes and relaxation times. New experiments have been developed to filter the NMR response such that the spectrum from aparticular component can be measured. The resolution has been increased with the development of multidimensional NMR methods for measuring the structure and dynamics. Solid-state NMR experiments can provide the link between the chemical structure and the macroscopic properties of polymers.
